Hi, I've been trying to get a handle on some "AM" headaches I've been having for a long time. I wake up with headaches occasionally. Today, I've had one for the first time in months. I had cereal and drank a glass of milk before going to bed because spouse asked me to help him drink milk he bought thinking I was using milk in my cereal. (I'm still using soy milk, even though I'm not a vegetarian but he didn't realize this.)
I'm wondering if dairy is the cultprit? I've noticed sometimes that after eating a pint of ice cream after a wicked night I've woken up with a headache.
But then there's been plenty of other times I've eaten dairy without a problem. And plenty of times I've stopped dairy (but only for brief periods of times) and I've had a headache.
My headaches seem to be sinus in nature, without congestion though, and almost always it happens while I sleep and I wake up with them.
Work was hell last night, but works been hell for 12 years. So I can't be stress can it?
Wonder if anyone with headaches can relate? I'm going to go into renal failure from motrin.
